“Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!” Psalm 133:1
Soccer season here! Here are some tips to make the start a smooth one!
- Register for/Renew your Patriot Pass as soon as possible. Check to make sure your contact info is current and then pay for your Pass using PayPal, Venmo, or by check or cash in our offices. Once your Pass is paid for it can take up to 48 business hours to be activated. Our offices are open Monday-Thursday 10am to 4pm. If you apply for your Pass on Thursday night at 10pm it will not be approved until Monday when the offices open.
- Pay only through the payment links provided. There are QR codes available on the Athletic Registration page as well as on the registration itself.
- Register your student-athlete for their specific sport. Log into your Patriot Pass account using your user name. Once you have logged in you will need to click on the Patriot Pass page link at the top of the page, then the Athletic Registrations link found in the middle of the page.
- Enjoy your season!
HERE ARE SOME KEY POINTS TO REMEMBER:
- YOUR PATRIOT PASS CANNOT BE ACTIVATED IF NOT PAID FOR.
- YOU CANNOT REGISTER IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A PAID PATRIOT PASS. This does not include camps or summer leagues – those do not require a Patriot Pass to participate.
- YOUR STUDENT-ATHLETE MAY NOT PARTICIPATE IN ANY ATHLETIC ACTIVITIES DURING THE REGULAR SEASON, INCLUDING PRACTICES OR GAMES, IF THEY ARE NOT REGISTERED THROUGH OUR ONLINE SYSTEM.
WELCOME SOCCER FANS!
We are gearing up for a great soccer season! Soccer is co-ed and open to ages 10-18. Our practices will begin the first week of October. This year we will be fielding a middle school team and a high school team. Both teams will practice at the same time and location to make it easier on our families. We are still in negotiations on a field location but should have that information as well as practice days and times available soon.
WE ARE PLEASED TO INTRODUCE THREE NEW SOCCER COACHES: Kyle McHenry, Alberto Cordova, and Jim Piper.
HERE ARE THEIR BIOS:
Hi, my name is Coach McHenry, I have played competitive club soccer for 10+ years, and I have been coaching for four years with the YMCA. I am super excited to get the chance to coach with FEAST and cannot wait to get started. My goals as a coach are first and foremost to have fun, and for the players to enjoy playing. It’s impossible to improve your skills as a player if you hate coming to practice and games, etc. I will do everything I can to make playing as fun of an experience as possible. My hope is that by the end of the season, you will have improved as a player and be motivated to keep improving. With that said, let me make one thing clear… I DO NOT CARE ABOUT WINNING GAMES. We are not a professional team or a club whose reputation is predicated on our success. For me, our season record is not nearly as important a metric as is the players being able to answer the question: Do you want to play again next year? With a resounding, yes. We will work hard, and we will play hard, and whatever results come from that are in God’s hands. I look forward to meeting everyone and having a great season. Go Patriots!! (Weird to hear myself say that being anti-Tom Brady for so long.)
Coach Alberto Cordova has a real passion for teaching and coaching others. He has had formal training in coaching and teaching and enjoys being active. He has been involved and has participated in various venues throughout the community, such as in city sports and coaching (soccer, softball, basketball, etc.). His more significant work has been working alongside his wife, Yvette, homeschooling their children.
Coach Jim Piper has been a competitive youth soccer coach for over ten years. Soccer has been a part of his life since he was five years old, and his passion continues through coaching. However, his greater purpose is developing the next generation on and off the field. He enjoys working with youth by guiding them to maximize their God-given strengths. His wife, Amanda, and their four children look forward to meeting you all.
Thank you to these men who have stepped up to coach! If you are interested in playing, contact commissioner Karin Calhoun at firstname.lastname@example.org.
FEAST Soccer season will be getting underway soon and with a new commissioner! Karin Calhoun will be the middle school and high school commissioner for the 2020-2021 soccer season. Karin’s son played FEAST soccer last year, where she worked with the outgoing commissioner, and Karin is super excited for a great season.
The season kicks off with practice in October, although a skills camp may be arranged for later in the summer. We are building our roster now.
Interested soccer players should contact Karin at (210)845-9131 or email@example.com, or Athletic Administrator Sherri Kunkel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
FEAST soccer is co-ed and open to 6th-12th graders. It is going to be a fantastic time!
Won’t you please prayerfully consider, or have a family member or even a friend prayerfully consider being a part of what makes FEAST such an amazing organization? Our Athletic Administrator, would be just a phone call, email or meeting away and she can assist you with anything you may need, including comprehensive training.

This year there were 4 seniors who played on the Patriot’s Soccer team, Samuel Rucker, Luke Rucker, Joseph Fry and Gabriel Lyons. Sam has played soccer for 6 years; Luke played 10 years; Joseph played 2 years and Gabe played 15. They will be missed but know that they will all do very well in their chosen fields.
Our season came to an end with our last game on January 15, 2020. We also had an end of the year party at Soccer Zone. It was a great year of soccer, growing and lots of fun.

Born into a military family, Gabriel Lyons has lived just about everywhere in the United States from Hawaii, Alaska, Texas, California, and all the way to DC. There were always common threads such as being homeschooled all his life,and among those threads was soccer. Having played fifteen seasons of soccer, three with FEAST, it is easily noticeable that Gabe enjoys the sport. This, his senior year of high school, is marked also with his last season of soccer. Gabe has been accepted into Grace College in Winona Lake, Indiana, aims to get a bachelor’s degree in chemistry.
We are very blessed and thankful for our FEAST Soccer coaches. Both give of their time and talents to coach our soccer team. Coach Joel White is there to assist Coach Rod and the players in many different ways. The team loves having him as their coach.
He is a Sophomore at SAC studying Speech and Communications. He has been active in his church through his youth and young adult life, enjoys leading in VBS, and also with some student ministries.
Along with college and coaching, Coach enjoys gaming with his friends, spending time with his family, and his dog Koda. Coach Joel has been involved with soccer since he was eight years old.
He is an alumnus of FEAST High School soccer and was invited to be an assistant coach at his senior soccer banquet by coach Rod Tanner due to his talent and leadership skills. Joel is also an Eagle scout and takes his leadership of the students very seriously, expecting integrity, hard work, and good sportsmanship.
THANK YOU, COACH JOEL, FOR GIVING YOUR TIME AND TALENT TO HELP THE FEAST SOCCER TEAM THIS YEAR!
